I see my surgeon next week, however, the metal plate used with the temporary implant for my reconstruction seems to be moving. Has that happened to anyone before? Is that normal or should I see my doctor sooner. I have some pain, but I heard some of that is "normal" for having the plate there.Any suggestions? It seems to be "falling" -- moving lower on my side and closer to the implant. Thanks for the help!

    HI, I actually had my entire expander flip-and during radiation no less. It was pretty wierd but the plastic surgeon was not worried about it. Hope this helps.
